Notes:  (1) While the ACS sample is a much larger sample than is available from any other current survey it is not currently large enough to provide reliable estimates for very detailed cross-tabulations; that is especially true for small areas or socio-economic characteristics with small populations.. Thus several cross-tabulations of varying combinations of household characteristics were produced in order to estimate several key variables for this income group.

(2) Student households tend to be lower income households by choice; non-family student households are typically not eligible for many of the assisted housing programs otherwise available to households in this income category. The presence of student households can distort observations about data of this type. We have thus provided a variable to distinguish student households from all other households in the data. Student Headed Non-Family is defined as a household meeting ALL of the following characteristics: currently enrolled in college under-graduate, college graduate or professional school; non-family; householder is 29 or younger; there is no household member with a disability.

(3) Census Bureau ACS estimates are from a sample survey and not a full count from a decennial census. There is a margin of error associated with the estimate. The range based on the margin of error reflects what the statisticians call a "90 percent confidence interval"; it means that nine chances out of 10, the true value falls within this range. We do not provide the range in this table, that is, the high and low ends of the range in which the estimate is found. However, if the low end of the range is negative (thus containing "0") the estimate is not statistically different from "0". In that case we substitute "not avail." for the estimate.
